Project management skills and a range of surveying disciplines have been utilised to enable accurate bridge and bored tunnel alignment along with the structural deformation monitoring of associated existing structures on both public and railway lands. Topographic surveys for large scale plans and volume analysis together with measured building surveys have also been regularly completed on various projects.

More recently, whilst working for the Cayman Islands Government considerable expertise was gained establishing the island’s GPS infrastructure that included 3 CORS stations throughout the islands. An island-wide radio and internet RTK service was also established that enabled the private Licensed Land Surveyors utilise GPS for the first time. Another success was establishing a National hydrographic survey resource for the islands that was ultimately realised by the completion of the bathymetric survey of the near coastal waters of the islands. As a consequence of this expertise John Phillips offers a consultancy service to both UK and International clients.
